Benefits of attending the Day Service
If you attend the Day service you will have a dedicated caseworker as well as the group support. Our casework provides a safe space to talk and can address numerous issues related to living with HIV. These include:
Long term management support to live well with HIV. Including giving advice to help navigate services, and improve confidence to manage daily challenges around healthcare.
Peer support – trained volunteers who are also living with HIV who can offer support confidentially either 1:1 or in a group.
Support with social issues including: housing, finances, immigration, employment.
Support with emotional and mental health needs. We will be able to listen, support and where appropriate refer to other professionals.
Communication around health issues within the family, work place or with health professionals.
Concerns within the home, e.g. domestic violence.
Referrals, signposting and care coordination.
We work closely with HIV clinics and community teams. The casework support we offer is flexible, needs led and regularly reviewed. We can provide home visits.
Who is the day service for?
The service is for people aged 18 and over that could benefit from peer group and 1-2-1 support. There is a focus on supporting mental health needs, ageing with HIV, building peer support networks and providing information around health issues, including HIV.
